Performance Of Evaporative Cooling Pads On A Swine Farm In Central Iowa – Pig Articles From The Pig Site – The Pig Site

Looking first at the ambient conditions, we note that as the temperature rises during the day, the RH decreases, which provides considerable temperature reduction potential during the hottest part of the day. Figure 2. Ambient and barn temperatures during early July 2012 for the monitored swine breeding/early gestation barn showing temperature drop across eveporative cooling pad (represented by locations A & B) and subsequent temperature rise along the length of the barn This is evidenced by Figure 3, where the temperature drops measured across the pads in two gestation barns are shown. Temperature drops of 10 to 20F during the day were common. The effect of the cooling pads is most dramatic on the first day shown in Figure 2 (7/6) where the ambient temperature wasat 100F for several hours but the barn temperatures only reached 85F. Figure 3. Temperature drops across evaporative cooling pads during early July 2012 for the monitored breeding/early gestation (B/EG) and late gestation (LG) barns Figure 4 shows the monitored days where the average daily ambient temperature exceeded 68F and the pads were running.

Doctors Prescribe New Boilers To Cold Sunderland Patients – Sunderland Echo

A pilot scheme, funded by Sunderlands clinical commissioning group, has helped six people across Wearside suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A team from Gentoo carried out an energy-efficiency assessment on the properties to see what improvements could be made. The six patients involved had 63 interactions with the NHS between them, including three emergency admissions. The average spend on energy-efficient improvements during the trial was 5,000, only twice the cost of each single emergency admission to hospital. Gentoo Green director Sally Hancox said: While conditions such as COPD cant be cured, it is hoped improvements to peoples homes will not only improve quality of life and reduce the risk of fuel poverty, but may help manage the symptoms and result in less ongoing support from the NHS.

Dixons And Carphone Warehouse Merger Creates £3.8bn Retail Goliath | Mail Online

Some customers, however, may struggle with the new concept, given the reputation of staff at Dixons. In the past, at least, they have been ridiculed for a lack of knowledge and a hard-sell approach. The merger aims to tap into a growing market for household devices connected to the internet via wifi. The number of such gadgets in each home is predicted to rise from a current average of four to 20 in the next few years. The merger will also provide greater muscle to tackle the threat to traditional retailers posed by specialist web firms such as Amazon. But City analyst Louise Cooper said there was likely to be much scepticism.
